What is Rackspace OnMetal?

OnMetal servers are single-tenant, bare-metal servers provisioned via the same OpenStack API as our cloud. They can be spun up as quickly as VMs to offer the agility of multi-tenant environments with the performance of single-tenant hardware. OnMetal servers are our own design and are engineered in a highly opinionated way. We’ve made them 100 percent solid-state with external cooling, leading to increased mean time between failures (MTBF). They are also incredibly large, so you’ll need fewer of them.

What is SoftLayer?

SoftLayer dedicated servers give you options from entry-level single processor servers to quad proc, hex-core, and even GPU-powered workhorses. They're all deployed in real time via our portal or API.

What is WiredTree?

We custom build your server by hand and manage it onsite and in person. Whatever your business requires, we give you a tailored hosting solution.

              Reviews of Rackspace OnMetal, SoftLayer, and WiredTree
              Review ofSoftLayerSoftLayer

              We use a mix of dedicated and cloud servers with SoftLayer and the service has been amazing. Great performance, great networking and for a really good price. The time of provisioning is sometimes longer than advertised, which can be a problem depending on your needs. Also while their API seems very powerful the documentation is not great.
